Generate PDF

Renda Integration

Rich HTML output generated by Floe can be transformed into a PDF document using Renda. As part of the PDF utilities collection, Renda offers an API that can be invoked to convert any HTML output to PDF document.
Floe 210 now supports PDF generation, so Floe emails can be sent with either a PDF equivalent attached or a completely different Floe-generated PDF.
